Giants' OL Chris Snee was one of the honorees at the United Way of New York City Gridiron Gala last night at the Waldorf.
He is normally not one to be the center of attention, but that does not inhibit his calendar when it comes to attending charity functions:
"I like to do off the field work and not really get noticed for it. It's just the way I've always been. If someone asks me if I want a camera there, I say 'no'."
Snee is one of the two remaining lineman (David Diehl is the other) from the team's record-setting group of a few years back. Change is coming, as the team has been loading up on young lineman and Snee appears to be prepared.
“It's exciting, but then again I’ve seen rookies come and go, so you can’t really count on them until you see what they can do on the field. Time will tell, and then we’ll get excited or move on. They come in and they have to prove to us they can play and they know the offense and can catch on quickly." Snee said last night.
He said the logical thing for the team to do during this transition period is to move Diehl to right tackle and place Will Beatty back at LT. He, of course, will remain at RG.
"My number will be called at some point, and they’ll have to put another right guard in there,’’ Snee stated in between photo ops and autographs. “I’m enjoying being the right guard and hopefully have a better season than last.’’
He did not make excuses about the line's poor performance in the rushing game last year. He was asked if his elbow had caused his play to falter. Injuries, he said, were not to blame.
"I need to play better," he said.
